    This. Movie. Is. Unbelieveable.
    Yorgos has arrived for wider audiences, and he’s done it in his own way. 
    Best choreography for Suspiria? Nope. It’s here. 
    Performance of the year by Colman? I’d bet on it. 

    A movie that explores our capability to extend admiration to others if it plays to our own benefit, and ultimately how we can become prisoners to that admiration if it is not genuine. How long can we do it for? For what purpose? How far…

    The Merced river runs through the Yosemite valley, overlooking various waterfalls, giant trees, half dome and other granite monoliths, and of course, the grandaddy of them all: El Capitan. Even now, months after my last visit, I imagine driving along that river and looking up above, with at least some sort of comprehension on the immensity of that rock. To give you the honest truth, it is impossible for someone to understand El Cap unless you’re there. You won’t understand…

    I don’t understand all these high school movies that are in suburban towns but they also have frat houses down the street. Seriously whose high school experience involved this!?

    Still as transcendent upon second viewing, and given the speed of this dialogue, I was able to pick up more of the nuances within Sarah’s lines. These characters exist in a ridiculous world but their complexity is so relatable. Beyond the queerness of these characters, the films stance on power in relationships is such groundbreaking and necessary messaging. I can’t believe this script took so long to get adapted.

    Not acknowledging this script at the end of this year feels like an incredible disservice for our present society and an even bigger disservice to the writers. This movie is brave. Obviously one of the best movies of the year and one of the better movies about race in America in the past 25 years. So entertaining; At parts funny, and at its best parts so thrilling. Can’t wait to see what they come up with next.
